Family tradition runs deep in Romani culture. It kept them going through centuries of racism, exclusion and persecution. One tradition is exclusive to Romani women: that of women born from the body of a witch, inheriting a power only they can possess. We follow eight-year-old Bianca, who is growing up in the Internet age when her grandmother is passing her divine feminine witchcraft on to her.
